Previously called Slugget, Brentwood Bay is a little community close to Butchart Gardens, the Victoria Butterfly Gardens and a great base for outdoor enthusiasts. Thankfully in 1925 the community chose a more appealing name. Here you'll find all types of accommodations, restaurants and amenities.
If you are heading up island, you can bypass Victoria and the Malahat by taking the ferry to Mill Bay. It is a short and very scenic crossing.
